Great support for long shifts! Ryka has never let me down, and Zappos customer service and easy returns is superb.

I needed a new pair of exercise shoes. This shoe really appealed to me (I ordered the slate gray/purple). I have worn Rya's in the past and have always gotten a half size bigger. This time, for some reason, they were too big and I had to return them. I am going to order this same shoe in my normal shoe size and hope that works.

This is my second pair of these shoes...I wear them daily for HydroTraining classes so they get a lot of use with jumping and moving in chlorinated water. I like them a lot. Fit great. Hold up great.

I bought these and a pair of Asic Gel Ventures 6 for a trip to Japan. I ordered both so that I could take the most comfortable pair on the trip. The Asics won out, they were just more comfortable out of the box. These have gotten more comfortable as I wear them. At first it felt like I was walking on boards but as I wear them they are breaking in a bit.

I love how comfortable these shoes are, BUT I purchased them 7 months ago and they are already falling apart. Underneath my big toe and under the ball of my foot has an actual worn out hole in the insole from general wear. I wear these shoes 3-5 days a week, walking/standing on concrete floors only. I'm really disappointed that they are already in need or replacing. The top of the shoe is also starting to separate from the seam and fraying. That being said, I think these were some of the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn to work. I work in a warehouse standing all day on concrete floors. The first 2 weeks wearing them gave me horrible cramps in my shins because of how cushioned they were, but once I got used to them, they greatly helped my general back pain, leg pain and foot pain that I get from working on my feet all day. I'm torn whether to buy another pair or find a new company because of how quickly they fell apart.

These Ryka Dash 3's fit my feet like they were custom made for them. They have a sllightly-raised arch pad which is exactly what my feet need. The toe box (I ordered the wide width) is bunion-friendly and the stretch fabric very comfortable. And I think it a cute style.

I wanted to love these shoes, but I was looking with something with more support. The other Ryka that I had tried had better insole support than these have.

These seem really good....light weight, comfortable, adjustable, good support. I also like the price. I wish a few more of the size 12 styles were available.

I really like these they are comfortable my complaint is the laces they are kinda bizarre like you can’t just sinch them and leave it like that I tried to tie them but it looked weird so I tucked them in but I just felt like they weren’t tight enough that way.

I really like the shoe, the fit is good, however the right shoe seems to hit my ankle in the wrong place and may cause a problem. I may send them back, can't see wearing something that won't feel good. I wore the Ryka high top for several years in the past, and wanted to try them again but I am not sure these will work. I need complete comfort in my aerobics class. The color is fun though. I am an older woman, 76 to be exact, and my feet have probably changed since the last time I wore the Ryka high top.

I’ve bought Ryka sneakers in the past so I knew I would love the Sky Walk sneaker. I usually wear a size 9 but in Rykas I need a 10. The memory foam insole is so comfortable I don’t want to take them off !!!! They provide great arch support as well. Awesome sneakers !!!!

I love these shoes! They are comfortable right out of the box, much like most of my Rykas. I bought my regular 6.5W size and they are perfect! I chose the red ones and the color is very nice, not loud but would make many outfits pop. I want to just give a little bit of background just how unique my feet are and how hard it is for me to find shoes that fit this well with out breaking in time. I have cerebral palsy and as a result I can't walk without shoes. I can't wear slippers either, so I spend 16-17hours in shoes. I also have a bunion and one of the shoes requires a lift. These shoes accommodate all of those issues! I have tons of Ryka shoes and most of them have worked out great. This brand is a lifesaver for me. These shoes are also very light. I live in Houston so these can be almost year-round shoes for me, barring severe rain and hurricanes :-). If you have serious foot issues give this brand a try. Give these shoes in particular a try. I am buying another pair! Zappos shipping is as always, exceptional too.

I love these!! I bought the Devotion Plus 2 first & loved them so much so decided to try the Devotion ones & they are just as comfortable if not maybe a bit more! I stand for at least 6+ hours on a typical work day grooming dogs then have to do things after work so am on my feet a lot. I have usually bought Fila’s & they were great at first but then my feet got so sore. So these Ryka’s have been a relief to wear.

I've been a fan of Ryka shoes for a while now, but was wanted to try a style that was a bit less like an athletic shoe. These slip ons are casual, sure, but they look rather tidy. Wish they made these in a wider range of colors. They call the color I bought Spring Denim, but it's more gray than blue. A good color, but the name isn't descriptive of the actual color. In terms of support, I think these are not as supportive as some of the other Ryka I have. Wouldn't wear these out for an active fitness walk, but they're fine to use when simply moving through my day. The arch support isn't quite the same as some other Ryka I have. Not terrible, just not quite as good.

Purchased these for a friends birthday. She loves them. They are her new favorite. Had to get the 9.5 because the 10 was to big. Zappos has the absolute best customer service ever. Never an issue with returning items.

I’m returning these sneakers. They fit well, but the end of the tongue, which is inside the sneaker, is not “finished”. It is sewn in raw and scratchy. I am sure if I were to wear them it would create blisters or worse on the top of my feet. This is cheap design and, because the fabric is stiff and scratchy, sure to be an irritant.

For a person with a very wide width and arthritic feet these sandals are perfect. They are cute and sporty.

i was so disappointed. bought the 10 and they were a little big and way to wide even with a medium width. i ordered the 9.5 thinking they would be perfect but alas i was mistaken. way too small .... so the search continues looking for a pair of sneakers....
